Rob Ritacco ~ Founding Pastor

Pastor Rob Ritacco, is a graduate of Charis Bible College Chicago, licensed under Grace and Faith Ministries, and ordained by Andrew Wommack, President of the Charis Bible Colleges.

Rob currently is the Executive Director and President of RCR Ministries, Pastor of Jesus Journey Free Church, is a member of the Board of Directors for Charis Bible College Chicago Alumni Association, and serves as an advisor to several other ministries.

"And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;"  1 Timothy 1:12

Monica Ritacco ~ Worship & Administration

One of Monica's passions is for Worship Ministry and facilitating Sunday morning Worship. She believes that through music, you can touch the soul and awaken the spirit to freely worship and connect with our one true God on an intimate level. 

She has been working in the marketplace for the past 30 plus years in various administrative positions which God is now using those skills to help administrate His church. Monica serves alongside her husband Pastor Rob here at Jesus Journey as a Trustee and on staff.  Besides the Worship Ministry, Monica oversees the day to day aspects of the church office.

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His Holy name. 
 Psalm 103:1 (NIV)

Susan Solar ~ Associate Pastor

Susan's passion is intimacy with Jesus and her heart is to disciple others in the unconditional love of God.  She is an ordained Pastor and graduate of Charis Bible College Chicago.  Susan has served in various leadership roles for many years, such as children’s ministry, prayer and counseling and currently leads a women’s prayer and impartation ministry.

Susan is married with two daughters and also works in the marketplace part- time as an Optician.  She serves the Lord Jesus Christ in every role of her life, as a minister, wife, mother and employee, and in everything she lays her hand to.

Flowing in the revelation, teaching anointing and the love of God, she presently serves as a Trustee and staff member at Jesus Journey Church and holds a position on the Board of Directors for Worship Expressions.

Dottie Nash ~ Associate Pastor

Dottie is a graduate of Charis Bible College Chicago and an ordained Pastor.  While attending Charis she served at nursing homes and a women’s shelter.  Her heart’s desire is to fulfill the purpose and plan that God has for her life.  It’s her desire to see the hurting set free and the sick healed; to awaken the hearts of those who aren’t aware of what Christ has done for them, that they not miss out on the opportunity to spend eternity with Jesus.  Heaven and Hell are real places.

Dottie has three children, two of whom are serving the Lord in the work place and one as a missionary in Mexico.  She also has two grandchildren.  For many years she was fortunate to be a stay at home mom.  She has also worked as a teacher, secretary to a church and a home builder, and helped to run an ice cream store.  At present, she is a member of the Board of Directors for Charis Bible College Chicago Alumni Association.

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19
